Summary
Kraybill (sociology and Anabaptist studies, Messiah College) and Bowman (sociology, Bridgewater College) describe Old Order Anabaptist culture and the contemporary communities that continue variations of that tradition. They discuss the beliefs and practices of Hutterites, Mennonites, the Amish, and the Brethren. Each group's strategy for preserving its own unique identity is examined and the commonalties and differences between the groups are described. The lessons of Anabaptist culture for modern America are also discussed. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
